Smile for the selfie-taking mirror

New, 32 comments

Society can't stop coming up with new ways to take selfies. The SELFIE, which is short for "Self Enhancing Live Feed Image Engine," is a two-way mirror that will capture your selfies for you with the help of a Mac Mini, a webcam and Arduino-controlled LEDs. Users activate the experimental device by standing on a custom vinyl graphic on the floor and smiling. The SELFIE will then execute a countdown before taking a photograph and publishing it on Twitter. Designed by digital agency iStrategyLabs, the SELFIE feels like a more sophisticated version of last year's Twitter Mirror, which allowed celebrities to shoot self-portraits and upload them to relevant event feeds. Those looking to acquire a SELFIE of their own so they can turn their bathrooms into amateur photography studios should contact iStrategyLabs directly.
